Great place to eat, a bit expensive but I'm definitely going back! I recommend eating maybe a light lunch if you know you're going as the food is plentiful and likely more than one can comfortably eat. I got full and there were still more food choices I hadn't seen yet! Definitely recommend!

Waitress was odd. We asked for more pao de queso, she responded it's actually per person but if you request for some I can bring some out. I respond ok, then she says so do you still want some? and I'm like well yes I just asked for some. A little irritated they'd go cheap on a little bread. They charged the same price as an adult for my child and he barely ate anything. They should have different prices for children.

The automatically add 20 % service charge even if they only serve two people then they ask for additional tip.

This is the fourth time we have been here.

The decor is not very cozy and the lighting is harsh. I expected a more intimate setting but I think the ambiance needed some help.

This time, our server was fantastic. She really paid attention to our needs and we were never short on water nor was she overbearing. She was wonderful and I wish I remembered her name. She had dyed bright red/pink hair. The best server we have had here for sure.

The salad bar was great, especially the cold options. But the warm food was not as great. The mussels may have upset my stomach and the salmon was very dry, possibly from sitting under warmth for a long period of time most likely.

The meats were amazing this time. Usually I don’t feel like we get as much variety as we did last night or at the frequency. It was wonderful!

Overall the experience was great. We’ve been here a handful of times now so it obviously satisfies our craving for meat. This was also the best experience we have had in all of the occasions we have dined here. Thank you to our amazing server!

My wife and I had to wait too long for the items that we we thought we will like, then the lamb chops looked and tasted like steamed rather than BBQ’Ed. Other meats they use are tougher cuts “ NO marbled at all. Chicken smells like boiled in salt water only.
Bad choice restaurant, I wouldn’t recommend to no one.

Decor looks cheap, no intimate setting at all, the food served was not good. I've been to great Brazillian Steakhouses and this one failed so badly. It was $300 for 4 people with tip. I will never go back to this place.

We were full too early in the experience. Done in less than an hour. That was our fault not the fault of the establishment. I'd recommend go light on the salad bar area to be able to try more of the meat offerings. Servers were great.

The only complaint I have is that there were a couple of tables with toddlers that thought it was fun to scream at the top of their lungs. The parents tried to quiet them down but then there was a screaming match table to table. Kinda funny but really not the atmosphere I was looking for at a place I was paying $50+ per plate for.

The Salad Bar and Hot food Buffet were very good. The gauchos were very attentive and the meats were pretty good. Some a little dry. The ambience is off. The dining room is very brightly lit and the tables are set up more cafeteria style than intimate dining. Due to the setup and layout, sound travels very easily so it was hard not to hear other conversations while trying to enjoy a nice dinner with my wife. I can recommend some layout criteria since I have a restaurant management background. I think with some minor tweaks the dining experience could be a 910 out of ten experience versus the 7 out of 10 I would rate our experience.

The food was very ok, and not worth what you have to pay it. I’ve been to many Brazilian steakhouses, and this was worst. The meats were dry, and some had a very gross aftertaste. The buffet was just ok. There was ceviche with imitation crab meat, which was pretty gross. Again, not worth $60 per plate.

Extremely poor service. Even with reservations we walked into the restaurant and another party was ahead of us and no one was up front to greet them or us for 10 minutes. The restaurant was 1/3 at capacity and service was still extremely slow. Rotation of service was poorly executed. They skipped us multiple times. For example, if the floor was like that of a clock then we were seated at the 9 o'clock position and the servers just came out of the kitchen and kept serving starting from 12 to 1 to 2 to 3 and so on. Each server never even made it passed the 7 or 8 o'clock position and it just kept repeating with no counter clockwise serving. Meat was all taken and we never were served timely. We were there for an hour and was only served 3 times (2 bacon wrapped chicken breasts and 1 chicken breast spice marinade) all which anyone could have eaten with a single bite. Will NEVER go back again. We left along with another table for the service or lack there-of. Readers beware as this seems to be the norm at this place!

Ambience was nice. Service was excellent. Meat servings are generous, variety plentiful, but a few lacked depth in their flavor. The menu is not extensive, nor does it need to be, so it was surprising and disappointing when our dessert choice was unavailable. Overall a very nice first visit and we would return.

Food is excellent but at least the night I was just there the service was awful. At times we would go 10-15 mins between someone coming by with a meat skewer. We saw our waitress when we sat down and took our drink orders, and then basically never again. I asked for the check as we were finishing our last servings as we had a movie to get to. 15 minutes goes by and still no check - waitress nowhere in sight. We finally ended up going up to the front and they had to track down our waitress to get the check, which took several more minutes. Ended up being late to our movie.

My advise - go to the one in Roseville.

The wait staff was excellent, the food wonderful, the overall look and feel of the restaurant was elegant. It is a little on the expensive side, but for a special occasion meal it was reasonable. You get what you pay for and the food was worth the price. The meats were perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. If you are in the mood for a fancy night out, this is your restaurant.

Overall experience was good. Unfortunately, we were the only table with a different serve for majority of our time there. We had a female server while everyone else in the dining area had another server who made his rounds as usual while our server was barely to be found. More than halfway through our meal we just decided we would ask the other server, he would then find her bring her to the floor and relay the message in front of us. Not sure if it was because we were only a party of 3 but this was disappointing. The food was really good, great rotating selection of meats coming out frequently. We went on an early weekday so wasn’t expecting a big show/their best but still would have appreciated better service. Maybe we’ll give it one more chance some day.

We visited for the first time. The Folsom restaurant was clean and beautiful. I had the Market Table meal with a large selection of salads, side dishes, salmon, muscles, rice, beans and soup. There was plenty of selections. My husband had the Full meal which included four proteins but each cooked in several ways or cuts. He enjoyed them and was able to have larger portions of some and smaller on others. He also had access to the Market Table selections. The Market Table is set up self-service style so if that is not your thinks beware. It was a good meal and a good value for the full meal selection at $54.95. A bit pricey if you are just eating the Market Table at $32.95. Delicious either way.

Excellent salad bar selection with typical Brazilian items like heart of palm, fejoida with rice in addition to the salads, cheeses, olives, pasta, eggplant, shrimp, etc…. and hot items like salmon, soup, mussels. It is great for vegetarians!
Carnivore heaven with endless meats including various cuts of beef, pork, chicken and lamb served table side with the requisite bbq pineapple at the end to help you digest all the meat. Don’t miss getting some picanha!

Most importantly the meet were still bloody when they came out, so unfortunately we paid lots of money just to eat side dishes and salad on Thanksgiving day! Our server only checked in us once or twice.
Overall it was a poor experience!

Our first time at Folsom’s Flame & Fire was nice, but not to die for. Salad bar was disappointing and pretty standard, but grilled veggies were delicious. I guess I expected more high end items. The shrimp was not on ice and one bite into it, I knew it was in my best interest not to eat it. It was very fishy and had probably been sitting out for a while. Thanksgiving dinner is not what they’re known for, so best to just stick to their menu. But I give them credit for trying. Sadly, the turkey breast was very dry, crockpot gravy was thick (canned?), mashed potatoes were good and the sweet potato cubes were overdone.

BUT, the staff were friendly and attentive, the drinks and the meats were delicious and perfectly cooked. The only exception was the leg of lamb, which was very dry. We enjoyed the experience and were so grateful to the staff that worked on Thanksgiving.

Not as good as we remember it being in the Roseville location. The salad bar, the amount of times we were offered meat and the quality was not as impressive in this Folsom location. I don’t know if their overall quality has gone down or if it’s just this location.

It was going really well until right at the end… I’ll preface this by noting that my party had already been dining for almost 1.5 hours when I requested a special dish to be brought out. It was getting busier by that time (6:30 pm), and I didn’t realize I had to special order the particular dish. If that’s on me, then fine. But then again, there are no instructions (that I saw) on the menu regarding ordering a specific dish.

Anyway, I put a request in for the dish, and about 30 minutes later the dish still wasn’t brought to our table. Longgg story short, we kept checking with the manager, server, and meat servers regarding the status of the dish. I REALLY wanted this dish, and honestly was going to wait until it came out. But I have a 1 year old who needed to get home to sleep, and we ended up leaving without tasting the dish. We were being told the dish would arrive soon, which made it even worse by setting a clear expectation on my part. Such a disappointment.

Aside from that associated with this incident, the service was great and the food was agreeable.

Do not recommend going there, service sucks, hostess sucks, bartender doesn’t know how to make drinks, out of many meat options yet they still charged us full price, we went there and got full off the sides. The gauchos kept ignoring us or simply not even coming to our table maybe cause they were catering to the all white table ? Who knows really? That same all white table was super loud and would not shut up for a solid 5 minutes we got up and left cause who wants to sit down and try to enjoy an already crappy dinner while there’s a f*** ton of chanting. Horrible horrible service.

For years we had been wanting to go eat here with all the hype and knew it was a spendy place; at least $50 per person. The only thing we ended up liking was the salad bar and cooked salmon from the salad bar. The meats were a way different story without any taste. The quality of the meats seemed okay but again, the taste was just not there. The place is waaaaay over priced. Good luck.
